Can’t come to the festival anymore, but already purchased your ticket? Unfortunately, tickets are non-refundable. However, you can go and try to resell it yourself. Ticketswap is our official reselling partner.
Please be careful when purchasing tickets from any other source than our official online ticket shop, Primera or Ticketswap, as we can’t guarantee the validity of these tickets.
We hand out floorplans to all visitors. You can grab them at the festival entrance or the Info desk. The floorplan includes a detailed map of all stages, food courts, toilets, lockers, token points, first aid and all other important locations, as well as the timetable.
At Welcome to the Future, you pay for your food and drinks with tokens (plastic coins). These tokens are available at the clearly signed cashier units located at the festival. You can purchase them using cash, your debit card (Maestro) or credit card (Visa, Master Card).
We have a wide range of food types available, including the classic snack menu, burgers, pizza, salads, soups, waffles, sandwiches, fruit, smoothies, gluten free, low carb, vegan, or lactose-free and a lot more!
Shuttle buses will operate between Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station and Welcome to the Future on both days, all day long. The first buses depart 30 minutes before the start of the festival. After the end of the festival, buses will continue driving to Amsterdam Sloterdijk until the last visitor has left the terrain.
The route the shuttle bus takes in Het Twiske will be mostly free of other festival traffic, and buses will always be given priority over other traffic.
You can buy your shuttle bus ticket in our online ticketshop once the ticket sales have started, or at the bus stop.
Leaving the festival? For your return trip back to Sloterdijk, keep in mind that there might be a waiting time of minimum 30 minutes.
Joining us from another city and looking for a comfortable way to get to Het Twiske? Get yourself a spot on a touring car!
We work together with several organisations that offers bus services with pick-up locations throughout the Netherlands. Head over to www.eventtravel.nl or www.partybussen.nl to find a pick up point near your home.
The Uber pick-up point is located outside of Het Twiske. Please keep in mind that waiting times will increase after the end of the festival. When leaving the festival, follow the ‘Uber’ signs to find your driver quickly at the special Uber pick-up point. The Uber app will point you towards this pick-up point as well.
Please note that it’s a 20-minute walk from the taxi stand to the festival entrance.
Welcome to the Future can best be reached by bike. The bicycle route from Amsterdam Central Station is signed and cycling from Amsterdam will take you around 25 minutes. There’s a giant bicycle parking right next to the festival entrance.
Take the ferry ‘Buiksloterweg’ right behind Amsterdam Central Station. Once across the water, just follow the signs! Additional ferries will be scheduled.
Leaving the festival? The way back to Amsterdam Central Station will be signed as well.
Your safety is extremely important to us. Therefore, everything and everyone is searched at the entrance (including luggage). Do you have something with you that is on our ‘blacklist’? Then we’ll throw it away. Pay attention! In some cases, access to the site of the festival may be denied. You’re not allowed to bring weapons, sharp or hard objects, glass and fluids. Bringing your own food and drinks is not allowed. When in doubt, contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
